Part 1: Program Level


Art Education 4-12 - Technology Curriculum
Special Education - Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED)

I work in a very specialized educational environment. The program level grade span appears very wide. However at this school, the K-12 span is not reflective of the average school grade level skills or abilities. Most of my students have the intellectual capacity to achieve at average or above levels. However due to their disabilities, which have impeded their progress, they are behind in many academic areas including art. Therefore, it is necessary for me to be extremely aware of their individual differences and the levels at which they begin to work regardless of the grade level at which they are registered. For example despite teaching high school classes, I rarely have students who perform or achieve at high school level in art or technology skills. In fact, I have found the students in grades 4-12 have proven to be within a satisfactory range to proceed in the development of a progression of technology lessons, which will enhance work in art and academic classes.

With this in mind, the following program goals have been developed:
Program Goals : Grades 4-12

Students will:
Develop technology skills and techniques beginning through intermediate levels.
Demonstrate the ability to create and communicate using digital media.
Gain understanding of cultural and historical art themes/periods as they relate to technology.
Display ability to recognize aesthetic qualities and critically analyze digital art.
Become aware of technology and its application to life.
